Mumford and Sons


I was fortunate enough to stumble across Mumford and Sons this week while listening to Australia's Triple J radio station. This London quartet have been talked about for some time now here and there. Better late than never on these guys I reckon. Although their sound is primarily rooted in bluegrass, the band seems to have found a niche in the indie scene. The infectious banjo riff and four part harmonies of their first single, 'Little Lion Man' are fantastic. It really gives me an east coast folk vibe for you Canadian readers fortunate enough to live or visit that side of the country. They have already been recognized for their talents by DJ's and award panelists on various fronts. The band is currently playing a ton of sold out shows between now and the end of October, when their debut album Sigh No More is set to be released on Island records, who they have recently signed with. Catch these guys UK folk...if you can get a ticket.

Yup, along with Wild Beasts they were the highlight of Field Day. They've been lumped into the scene wirh Laura Marling, Johnny Flynn and the other anti-folksters although live they're a much rawer proposition. This song is pretty immense, there's also some really good youtube clips of their acoustic performances which I highly recommend.
